It's decent enough, I like it. My virus checker (ZoneAlarm) - and most 
likely, others - are adept at killing bad files coming in via it (though 
you still need to be diligent) - just explain to them that when your VC 
finds something, it'll yank it out from Limewire, which will say "File 
is corrupt" (or words to that effect) - this is different from another 
which is "appears to be corrupt, continue?" - the file is corrupt is the 
infected file so, just tell them that there's no point to/they shouldn't 
try to re-download that one.

Ethics and legalities, I'll leave up to you. :)
